The eight-week online Change Through Compassion Workshop provides participants with the opportunity to gain experience in mindfulness and self-compassion by deepening their own wisdom through an emphasis on practice.
Research on self-compassion and mindfulness show that these practices can boost your health and wellness by contributing to overall happiness, reducing anxiety and depression, and even helping you maintain beneficial lifestyle habits such as diet and exercise.
This workshop meets for eight weekly sessions from September 15 through November 5. Sessions run from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. EST. The Retreat Day is October 22 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. EST. The investment for the workshop is $370. We recommend obtaining a copy of the “Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook” (2018) by Chris Germer, Ph.D., and Kristin Neff, Ph.D., to support your learning.
The Change Through Compassion offerings are founded on the evidence-based Mindful Self-Compassion program, developed by Germer and Neff. The UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness maintains responsibility for this program and its content.
This workshop meets the requirements for Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher Training and the Self-Compassion in Psychotherapy, or SCIP, program. Discount of $25 for SCIP participants.
Samaritan Counseling Center is also able to offer 24 continuing education credits, or CEs, for mental health professionals at a cost of $80. CEs for this program are provided by UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness, which is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The State Board of Pennsylvania accepts these CEs for licensed clinical social workers, licensed professional counselors, and licensed marriage & family therapists.
